The 6 Biggest Advantages of Enrolling in Medicare Online

medicare-online-enrollment-advantages

You have choices when it comes to enrolling in a Medicare Plan, not only which plan to enroll in, but also how you enroll. When you can choose from enrolling by phone, in person, or online, what do you gain by enrolling in Medicare online?

Enjoy convenient & complete enrollment

With an online tool, you can complete your Medicare enrollment from anywhere at any time if you have access to a device with an Internet connection. The widespread use of smartphones, tablets, and laptops has made online choices increasingly convenient! An online tool may also be a good option for you if you’re in an environment where you need to be quiet and not have a long phone call with an insurance agent.

Access enrollment 24/7

One of the best aspects of Medicare enrollment online is that it’s available 24/7. Your Medicare needs aren’t limited to business hours, so your Medicare tools shouldn’t be either. Complete your Medicare enrollment early in the morning, late at night, or over lunch. Whatever best fits your schedule, it’s your choice.

Save your application and return

With the “save” option on our Medicare Online Enrollment Portal, you can save your partially complete enrollment and come back to it when you’re ready to proceed. No waiting for a return call or leaving voicemails. Whether you need to contact Social Security to get a copy of your red, white, and blue Medicare card or stop to make a list of your medications, so you can make sure they’re covered in the Medicare Advantage or Prescription Drug Plan you’re enrolling in, you never have to worry about losing your place.

Easily work with a partner

If you’re working with a spouse, family member, or other individual to research plans and complete enrollment, an online tool may be easier for you to use together. Enrollment on the phone or in person may be limited by your proximity to the other person, permissions required for that individual to be involved in your healthcare discussion, or other complications. With an online tool, you can choose when, how, and with whom to share your information.

Simplify comparisons

You may review multiple Medicare Plans before choosing the one in which you wish to enroll. With the Medicare Online Enrollment Portal, you can easily compare plans in your area to see the available benefits and relative costs.

Accommodate different needs

Different enrollment methods may be easier than others, depending on your needs. For example, reading a website may be easier for some individuals than listening to someone on the phone, or vice versa. Someone who doesn’t have consistent transportation might prefer phone or web enrollment while someone that enjoys face-to-face interactions would rather go to an insurance office.

We’re proud to offer enrollment by both telephone and online to honor multiple ways of communicating and offer different ways to complete the vital task of Medicare Plan enrollment.
